financial aid checklist1 300x199Annually each fall, the WKHS Counselors have an expert in the Financial Aid process present to our senior families. Students with post-secondary plans, need accurate and up to date information on completing the FAFSA, loan eligibility, and all the other nuances of the financial aid process. We have been fortunate to have Faith Phillips, Director of Financial Aid at OSU Newark and Central Ohio Technical College, present to our students and parents. Attached are her powerpoint slides for the November 2023 presentation.

    For those parents who were unable to attend, unfortunately the presentation was live and so it was not able to be recorded.  However, Faith Phillips shared with us that she had done a video presentation that families can access.

    holiday griefStudents who have experienced the death of a loved one are invited to participate in a Holiday and Grief Workshop on Thursday, December 7th during 7th period.  Celebrating the holidays can be hard when someone loved and cared about is missing.  This brief one-time workshop will focus on ideas for how students can manage grief during the holiday season.  The workshop will provide positive ways to honor and remember loved ones while also still respecting the student's own feelings.

    Students are asked to RSVP to their School Counselor so that we can have enough materials for the activities for all participants.

    ExamsAt the end of each semester students will have a semester exam.  This may take the form as a traditional exam or through some other learning opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge and growth during the semester in the content area covered by the class.  Exams will take place over the course of 3 days with each exam block being almost 2 hours in length.  Students are not required to attend an exam during their lunch period.  Buses will leave after the exams on the final day so any students needing to complete a make-up exam will have to provide their own transportation.  Below is a general timeline of the exam schedule:

    asvab testingThe Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is a test that serves as a qualifying exam for students interested in a military career and is also a helpful career based assessment to help students identify personal strengths and areas of interest for the future.  Information about the ASVAB is available at: https://www.asvabprogram.com/

    While many people know the ASVAB is a test used for military enlistment and classification, the ASVAB Career Exploration Program (CEP) is much more than a military test. The ASVAB CEP can be taken by all students in 10th grade and above, regardless of their future career plans. 
    Students can have no intention of entering the military and still take the ASVAB as a career exploration tool!
    The ASVAB will be administered to interested students on Friday, January 12, 2024 at WKHS.
    If interested in signing up to take the ASVAB, please complete this interest form or see your school counselor.
